Scottoish Fold Cats - A unique & adorable breed
In many ways Scottish Fold is a very particular race. Their name comes from the one-of-a-kind way in which their eyes are pleated forward. This longhaired strain is known in Canada as'Coupari' and elsewhere as'Highland Fold'. In Australia, the straigh anar strain is now recognised as an independent race and is known as "Scottish Shorthair".
The Scottish Folds can all be traced back to a certain Scottish forebear who was living in Scotland in the middle of the twentieth centuary! First Scottish Fold was a female named Susie who in the 1960s was living on a farmyard near Coupar Angus in Tayside, Scotland. She had the'folded ears' that are so unmistakable and recognised in the race today, but were one-of-a-kind at that age.
Suzie had a kitten throw, two of them had earrings and a neighbouring peasant William Ross and his woman Mary fallen in for one. It was a little Caucasian woman they adopted and called'Snooks'. The' Ross' were so fascinated and bewitched by the appearance and character of these females that they began a kennel programme (mating with normal house and short haired males) to develop the race and refer to them as'floppy ear' or'floppy ear', as they were reminiscent of floppy ear bunnies with long, drooping eyes.
The GCCF initially recorded this new race, but, concerned about bony anomalies and possible auditory problems, they ceased to register it in 1971. Fortunately for these soft and pretty females the US breeder have taken care of their cause. Several of Susies' immediate offspring were imported to the USA and in the 1970s intensive breeder programmes were carried out with these females, and both UK and US Shorthair were introduced in North America.
The Scottish Fold race was temporarily recognised by the Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) in the USA in May 1977. It has a cute, wide-eyed look in a round skull, a shorter throat and a strong, dense or "round" (almost roundish) bodys. That makes them almost unbearable lovable and they keep this kittenish sweetness even in adulthood.
Scotch folds generally weighs between 6 and 13 pounds when fully developed, with the female at the easier end and the male at the more severe end of this equator. You can fold the ear (and the "degree" of folding can range from a loose "simple" fold to a narrow "triple" fold), or even just.
The Scottish Fold catkins are all borne with right ear, but when they are about 3 to 4 week old, their ear may show wrinkles. Approximately 50% of cats will have wrinkled kittens. Ear apexes are always round. Scotch folds can have either long or long jackets, and the coat should be thick.
Spot colours - includes the full-tone colours clear x-ray, monochrome, dark x-ray, bluish, red and creme. Two-coloured - with uncoloured spots in colour either darker, bluer, redder or more. These cats are the "total package" and have the character that matches their lovely "cuddly" appearance! This is a short abstract of the Scottish Folds nature:
Tender, caring and faithful - but not'affectionate' Sometimes a little'stubborn' and (like all cats) have their own head! Another fun little'quirk' found only in Scottish Fold Cat is her odd capacity to seat upright, with her hind limbs right out, like an adder or even a fuzzy little Buddah.
Like all thoroughbred pets, Scottish Folds have certain medical conditions. Genetical mutations that give these females their enchanting pleated ear have an effect on the whole of their bodies and can also be associated with skeleton disorders and anomalies. It is most commonly seen when two females are raised together with the "folded" ear.
Cats that carry a pleated epithelium is called fd and has flat eyes. When it has two congenes for this property, it is an'Fd' and has pleated eyes. Therefore irresponsible growers only bred folding to straight couples, or'outcross' to American Shorthair and British Shorthair (the only permitted outcross).
People without genetically pleated hearing may have an above-average trend to develop typehritis later in their lives, but there is currently insufficient proof that this is a clear state. Scottish Fold females with narrowly pleated eyes may have more trouble with mite or infection, so it is a good idea to take a look in their eyes from time to time to make sure that there is nothing "brewing".
If you are considering purchasing a Scottish Fold kitty, it is a good practice to make sure that your parent has been screened for these two conditions and is free of them. All in all, meticulous farming techniques have breathed new life into this enchanting cats and Scottish Folds are now a generally sound and powerful race.
This is actually very fitting, considering that her very first forefather was a sturdy Scottish breeding cats!
